When the ancient Jews were bargaining with someone, they always stood or sat with their feet together and their hands clasped to effectively conserve the vital energy of their body.
When the Jew bargained in this way and his opponent did not, the Jew had the advantage.
Select a small group of unselfish, clear thinking people to accompany you for the following exercise.
Let everyone sit in a circle with their feet together and their hands clasped.
Each participant should be a separate physical unit, not touching one another.
Positive, constructive thoughts have far more power than primitive, destructive thoughts.
Choose an unselfish thought for the benefit of mankind that you all agree upon.
Now sit in relaxed silence and think of that unselfish thought, while all of you gaze into the center of the circle at the space on the floor.
You can use a candle as a focal point if you like, but it is not necessary for the effect.
After several minutes, each of you will gradually feel a calm and peace permeate your very essence.
You will feel as if you're being flooded with inner light and the spiritual feeling of being one with the universe will be more readily understood.
Do this for at least 15 to 30 minutes.
All pure thoughts that you generate in this way not only contribute to the welfare of the people around you, but to your own benefit as well.
Even practicing by yourself in this way is highly beneficial.
("Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them .
" Matt.18:19) So one person plus another person agreeing on the same thing is not 1 + 1 in amplitude, but like 10 x 1 in its effect.
Since the group effect geometrically increases the amplitude of any focused attention, it can also be used in telepathy, psychokinesis and sending healing energy to someone at a distance.
Multiply a negative vibration by thousands or millions of people and discordant 'auras' over cities, countries or even worlds can be perceived as they are approached from a distance.
Focused, directed, positive energy from one or more people can change events and conditions because orderliness is more universally natural than disorderliness.
Your energies are more in harmony with the universe when they are positive and focused.
When you feel the universe as friendly, abundant and filled with joy and selfless love, you attract exactly that reality.
As an example, in areas where large groups of peaceful meditators congregate, crime and traffic accidents drop significantly.
Whether you engage in negativity or positivity, as ye sow, so shall ye reap.
